D23 Members will explore the travels and adventures of the “Showman of the World” as the Walt Disney Archives presents “Walt’s Great Adventures” at Destination D: Amazing Adventures, November 19 and 20 at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. This special exhibit, created exclusively for the event, will feature rare photography, models, and props that showcase Walt’s personal journeys, from his famous trip to South America in 1941 to some of his most memorable projects on film, television, and at Disney theme parks.
